Freelance DT / Maker / Carpentry / Set Design Facilitator

The Hive

Job Summary

The Hive are seeking facilitators with experience in making, arts, carpentry, woodwork, tool use, set design, DT, etc. to join our Makers Lab team this Summer. Roles available in Dulwich, Eltham, Northwood, Sevenoaks, Weybridge.

Job Description

Founded in May 2014, The Hive is a fast-growing education company focused on Outdoor Learning. We currently focus on three distinct areas: Outdoor Holiday Camps for children, term-time school workshops and Forest School training for adults.

The Mission Lead Facilitator is responsible for the overall successful delivery of The Hive’s missions: you will be at the front line of engaging young people in the outdoors in an innovative and exciting way! Each day you will lead dynamic activities, engaging and enthusing a group of young people while fulfilling the learning outcomes of the Mission Brief. Working alongside a Support or fellow Lead Facilitator, and as part of a larger camp team, Lead Mission Facilitators play a key role in delivering an exceptional Hive experience for children and families.

Our facilitators are a vital part of our team and most stay with us for many years, becoming a real part of The Hive community. We pride ourselves on nurturing our regular team of facilitators and are passionate about growing their skills through their work with us.

This role refers to our Makers Lab Missions. These Missions require experience of working with primary school children, maybe as a young artist, student architect or DT PGCE student. You will need basic knowledge of AutoCAD 360 and of building simple wooden structures, such as Go-Karts, swings and basic shelters.

To apply for the role, you must have experience of working with children and young people, ideally delivering practical workshops in either a school or an informal learning setting. A willingness to work outdoors and in nature is a must. You will need to be energetic, versatile and committed, with a natural instinct for engaging children aged between 8-13 in practical sessions.

Interviews and roles will be offered as applications are submitted, so we recommend applying early if you are interested in working with us.

Job Requirements

  • At least 2 years experience delivering practical workshops with primary school children. (If you have less experience, but are keen to join, Support Facilitator roles are also available.)
  • Availability between Monday 8th July – Friday 16th August 2024. You must be available for at least two weeks (camps run Monday – Friday) during this period.
  • Experience of using both hand and power tools with young people.
  • Experience of using design software with young people.
  • Experience of working with children or young people in a creative way i.e. role-play, immersive gaming, live technology etc.
  • Knowledge of the health and safety implications of working with tools.
  • Competent craft skills.
  • An enhanced DBS certificate issued within the past 2 years or registered on the DBS Update Service or a willingness to undergo an enhanced DBS check prior to job offer.
  • Excellent organisational skills and an energetic and playful approach.
  • Punctual, reliable and committed.
